SECOND MEETING  VIRTUAL ON TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 28 (because club day was moved from Monday)
Those members who chose OPTION B may choose to stay after school for our first decorating session on Tuesday, Sept. 28.
Bring 6-12 cupcakes, decorating icing, decorating supplies that include bags and tips. We will be in the upstairs teacher's lounge across from Mrs. Stanley's room. Only students who chose option B may attend. Everyone must be socially distant. We will spread out. I only had 12 students turn in option B.
